  • Drying clothes indoors

    Hello

    I am just about to purchase my first property, a ground floor studio flat in London, and wondered what the best way of drying clothes effectively would be? Currently, I lodge with my landlord and I am able to use a clothes horse in the bathroom. Unfortunately, the bathroom in my flat will be too small for this purpose and as there is no central heating, wont be any warmer than the rest of the property - all the properties in the area are electric only due to proximity of a sewage works. There will be one portable oil fueled electric heater in the main room - total size of the flat is 307 sqm. Would using a dehumidifier work as a cheaper alternative to a tumble dryer? If so, what is a good make/model to buy?

    Many thanks

    I dry my clothes indoors regularly. If you do hang them up indoors, make sure to "snap" them out really well before you hang them, it will eliminate most of the stiffness.

      But this isn't a right way, but I understand having no other way you had to go for this.
      Anyways I've just drilled 2 stick on the wall across the passage and it works okay for me. Drying clothes indoor isn't a good thing though.

        Drying clothes indoor is not good enough but helps when you have no other option left.
        Nice idea to drilled up sticks on the wall and use for drying clothes.

          I don't see anything wrong to dry clothes indoors. I always do it in airy room. They don't get musty or something. For real, it's not simple to dry clothes outside, because of frequent rains

            Hi,

            As an estate agent also dealing in lettings we have the issue with "How to dry my clothes" often.

            I would encourage you to use a dehumidifier as well as adding the drying of the clothes it will also take moisture out of the are which means you will not get the dark mold growing in corners from condensation.

            Good luck in your new place!

              Open the window and hang clothes on a coathanger on the curtain rail?

                Drying clothes indoors is fine, providing there is some ventilation to avoid getting damp/mould!

                  Clothes horse should still work.
                  My house wouldn't be the warmest and there's never any problem drying the clothes on a clothes horse.
                  If space is a problem you can get a device that hangs over the side of a radiator. It's much smaller than a clothes horse, but it has a few rows on it for hanging your clothes. Could be an option.
